We, the Redemptorist Formation Community (RFC students) and the Seniors Community had our first joint Recollection this year with a theme: Reconciliation. It was held on November 13 in GAP Farming Resort located in the Diversion Road in Davao City. The place was very conducive for our personal reflection and sharing for it is a park with various fruit trees, farm animals and displays on a Filipino culture. The morning was spent for personal reflection followed by a “by-pair” sharing. In the afternoon, we concluded our recollection with the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. We had a rather creative way of giving of the Kiss of Peace. We had a giving of letters to those whom we are grateful for, whom we have hurt, and those we want to know more. After the Mass, some went home while others went for a swim in the pool to enjoy the resort. Overall, it was a very fitting time for us to listen to ourselves as well as to listen to each other.
